of the global security challenges right now. the war in afghanistan -- from the u.s. perspective, is it w winnable? >> if it becomes a home game -- let me explain that. most people think america had great success with the surge in iraq. that's true. but it's important not to forget why the surge worked. we concentrated resources in an area where we had the ability to impact and increase security. we did it in the aftermath of the local sunni leaders turning radically against the al qaeda in iraq because they overplayed their hand and they decapitated tribal leaders who didn't agree with them on things like putting women in boxes and hiding away in life. so our surge became the home team. the reason every counterinsurgency failed in world war ii except what they did in malaysia where they were chinese, not melees, they stayed 14 years, is that it's still an away game. and look at the debate. if you -- if you listed any of the talk shows today, the problem with an away game is you can always go home. and they don't have any other place to go. so i don't care how much bigger your forces are,

journal this is "washington journal."> > . \. the u.s. recently opened itself to the most intense scrutiny yet by the international monetary fund, and on thursday was offered a bitter pill when the agency criticized some well-defended aspects of american culture. cheap fuel, sub deciding housing and a government retirement check. >> we want to get your reaction to the imf calling for the u.s. to make lifestyle changes. call the numbers on the screen. you can also tweet us at twitter.com/cspanwj or send an email to journal@c-span.org here are the numbers again to call in. this is back to the "washington post" article on the imf report calling for the u.s. lifestyle changes. the risks are tilted to the downside david robinson of the western hemisphere said as he presented the annual assessment of the u.s. economy in its first-ever review of the financial sector. host: now we got the imf report that just came out yesterday, and here's what it said -- in part of this report, and this is at imf.org if you want to read it for yourself. the obama administration's intention to freeze non-security
of a stale mated policy and warning u.s. credibility as a mediated. sadly the author's assessment can be applied elsewhere around the world. it seems president obama and the administration as a whole have struggled to find its voice when it comes to the promotion and protection of basic human rights and religious freedom. in these most cherished ideals which are at the heart of the american experiment have been sidelineded by this administration's policy. this is difficult for people who yes or no to freedom and look to america to be their advocates. looking back to sudan in a nation i visited in 1989 and most recently in 2004 when senator brownback and i were the first congressional delegation to go to darfur, i remained concerned that the country is headed to a civil war if the u.s. fails to exert its necessary leadership. while there are certainly times i was critical of the bush administration's policy, it is indisputeable that president bush and former special enjoy danforth were not having the comprehensive c.p.a. brought about the end of a brutal civil war which two million per
in saudi arabia and resurfaced last month in a series of videos. in this particular one he reported u.s. agents abducted him and subjected him to mental torture. then in another video he insisted he was happy here in the united states. he later accused the united states of putting this out as propaganda. well the feds report the nuclear scientist was a willing defector who shared useful information as they call it about iran and that he was free to leave any time he wanted there are suggestions that someone back home may have threatened his family. forcing him to make up the kidnapping story. a story to which he stuck today. >> god willing, i will at an appropriate time prove all these things and show that, in fact, lies come from the mouths of u.s. officials. >> shepard: he better hope so because he is back in iran. but as he greeted his 7-year-old son at the airport today, a report surfaced that those u.s. officials paid him for the information he shared. which, as it turns out, isn't really so unusual. mike emanuel at the pentagon. our government claims it was around $5 million or so
of a spy novel itself. and it seemed like the priority here was u.s./russia relations. the question outstanding is what kind of threat does russia pose with its espionage against the united states? >> let's step back for a second and understand that i think this is a great credit to our law enforcement. we made arrests, law enforcement community made arrests. these individuals have been monitored for quite some time. they tried but they never got classified information and intelligence. and now they've left the country, which again is a big win for our law enforcement community. i set that aside. i think our relationship with russia is no doubt improving if you look at where it was just a few years ago. the economic discussions that president medvedev and president obama made recently in reducing nuclear weapons and hopefully we'll get a treaty through senate this summer that will further reduce nuclear weapons means our security is stronger and safer and our relationship is stronger. >> more broadly on foreign policy. i can remember back two years ago as you can july of 2008 the pr
, will be able to form a government. you know, the context of this, lynn, of course, is that u.s. forces are drawing down and that they continue on schedule. there will be no combat forces left there by the end of the next month. it's a little ironic that vice president biden was there promoting this unity government. it was senator biden before the 2008 election who first put forward the idea of partial or sort of quasi partition of iraq among the kurds, shiites and sunnis and now the fourth visit as vice president to iraq trying to encourage these leaders, prime minister, others, president to get it to get it together and form the government. when he was there, of course, he met with u.s. troops at a mess hall there. a dining hall. he was there, also, to attend a naturalization ceremony. there you see it there with general odierno. they wear the uniform and now -- shaking hands at that moment becoming u.s. citizens on the fourth of july. there was that scare. we should mention, lynn, when there were explosions. some sort of projectile hitting the ground within the green zone. the very
sleeper agents have been sent back to russia. in exchange, the u.s. is receiving four men accused by moscow of spying for the west. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams is live for us in washington. pete, i've been watching you cover this thing minute by minute. i don't know how you can catch your breath. this has happened so quickly. >> reporter: well, and it's all over now. the plane carrying the ten russians from u.s. landed in vienna. they got off, landed, the four from russia landed in vienna earlier today. that plane has landed in the united kingdom where those four agents accused -- convicted of spying for the u.s. and western agencies in russia will be deep death briefed by british and american officials before some of them, probably not all of them, eventually come to the u.s. but that's a ways away. they'll stay a while in the uk for this rest period. so it's finally over, tamron. now some of the ten, at least one of them, at least, will not stay in russia. that is what their lawyers say. at least one of them, originally from peru, intends to go back to peru and the
the starting point is to acknowledge that, that there is a problem, that if you ask about the state of the u.s. public finances 15 years from now, under current policy it looks pretty grim. so something will have to be done. the question is what about now? and if we skimp on supporting the economy now, first of all, we deepen these problems. we make higher unemployment, we reduce the long-run prospects. secondly, we do amazingly little to improve our long-run budget position. i'll give you a number. suppose we talk about a trillion dollars, more or less, of spending in the next year or two. trillion dollars, the u.s. government can currently borrow, if it issues inflation indexed bonds, it can currently borrow at an interest rate of about 1.7%. so a trillion dollars of spending is going to add to future interest costs only $17 billion a year, with a $2.5 trillion federal revenue base. it's not going to make a significant difference. but it could make all the difference in the world to the state of the economy in the near term. so the arithmetic says that yes -- well, the arithmetic is basicall
. this continues, come august, it's going to be tiny town u.s.a. first, immigration showdown, the obama administration suing the state of arizona over the new and controversial immigration law. the administration contend the law is not constitutional. as you may know arizona passed a law requiring police officers who enforce other laws to question the suspect's legal status if the officer believes the person is in the country illegally. the white house has been critical of the law. the president called it misguided. but supporters claim arizona has no other choice and they argue the feds are not doing enough to secure the borders. trace gallagher is working the story from the west coast newsroom. what's the basis of this lawsuit? it's specific, right? >> yeah, it is. we have the newsroom working this, 25 a pages was the filing. basically it's the chicken and egg legal argument saying the federal government has a law on the books making it illegal to be in the country without documentation. they're citing the supremacy clause saying basically federal law trumps state law. there's nothing
biden in iraq. a show of support for u.s. troops this holiday weekend, but is there another mission at hand? we're live in baghdad. >> plus, feeling the heat. the head of the republican national committee under increasing pressure from within his own party to step down. all over his recent comments about the war in afghanistan. >> so what is next for michael steele? can he survive another scandal? >> new developments on day 75 of the national skavt in the gulf. tonight, growing fears the oil spill is now moving farther east. so, we'll show you where it's headed now and is there any hope of it slowing down. >>> first off, joe biden in iraq for independence day weekend. unannounced visit to baghdad perhaps a duel mission. the vp and his wife are celebrating 4th of july with troops. but it's also a sign that they are stepping up support for the emergency democracy. the newly elected parliament is expected to meet for the second time since the march 7th vote but even so some analysts political gridlock could be set. tens of thousands of troops are set to leave in august. partial withdra
. >>> hot too found south and let's get up to speed on the oil spill in the gulf. the u.s. navy has now deployed a blimp it says can cover a wider area than a helicopter in an effort to monitor the scope of the spill. weather conditions will keep the blimp from arriving until friday. with tar balls washing ashore in texas, every state along the gulf coast has now seen oil arrival on its beaches and marshes. rough seas kept boats docked off the coast of florida and louisiana. the giant skimmer ship a whale needs more testing. they have really had high hopes for that a whale ship. >>> in the meantime, president obama and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu are denying a rift between the two, following an hour-long meeting, as important for friendship as for the actual conversation. the focus was on broad subjects, but both have said they support face to face talks with the palestinians. >> i believe that prime minister netanyahu wants peace, i think he's willing to take risks for peace and during our conversation, he once again reaffirmed his willing to engage in serious negotiation
